Optical Media

You can configure the optical media (CD and DVD) protection levels on the Optical Media FRP policy page.

Option Definition
Optical Media Protection Level Provides the ability to specify protection level for CD/DVD. These methods are mutually exclusive and the Enforce Encryption (with offsite access) option is enabled by default.
  • Allow Unprotected Access (report) — Does not encrypt while burning files and folders to a CD or DVD.
  • Allow Encryption (with offsite access) — Allows securely encrypted data to be written to optical media or to ISO images. Individual files up to 4 GB in size can be placed on an encrypted CD/DVD.
    Note: This option allows the creation of media that can be securely authenticated and accessed by any system with a supported Windows operating system, without having to install the FRP client.
    Note: The type of the optical media determines its capacity (ISO can be any size up to DVD-DL). Supported optical media: CD, DVD, and DVD-DL.
  • Enforce Encryption (with offsite access) — Enforces the secure encryption of data written to optical media or to ISO images. Individual files up to 4 GB in size can be placed on an encrypted CD/DVD.

At the same time, it disables the writing of files and folders to a CD or DVD using third-party software. Only McAfee FRP for CD/DVD/ISO can be used to write files and folders to CD/DVDs when this option is selected.
